The Sound Board #34: Your Scapegoat Finally Gets a Word In

Elvis Hips Censored

This podcast generally covers music and other transgressions. This month’s episode is helmed by Prof. Tuffley with Dr. Rob Levy providing backup and Widgett on hand because every podcast needs a guy wearing an alarm clock around his neck.

This episode’s central topic is: remember the good old days when music and musical shenanigans could shock you? Yeah, us neither. We also discuss: new albums coming; festival lineups; mourning the losses of George Jones, Phil Ramone and Storm Thorgerson; music helping out with the situation in Boston; your Rock and Roll Hall of Fame bitchfest update and more.

Stuff You Need to Know: Imagine Captain Kirk Yelling “Cumberbatch”

Benedict Cumberbatch

All the pop culture news you really need to know in one post. This section of the site is designed for people who like to batch process things. Enjoy.

  • In excellent news for everyone involved, Benedict “Sherlock” Cumberbatch is the villain in Star Trek 2. The other person they mentioned auditioning for it was Edgar Ramirez. So this is the same role that Abrams wanted Benicio Del Toro for? That was rumored to be Khan…and then it looked like it had been confirmed…and now it looks like it’s a rumor again. So who knows? Either way, this is very pleasing news. Source: Variety.
  • Bag of Bones is scheduled to hit DVD on March 13th. It’s available for pre-order here.
  • Drive is hitting home video on January 31st. A lot of people liked it more than I did–and so be it–but Albert Brooks is a revelation, no matter what. Here are: DVD and Blu-Ray pre-order links.

    Some Sync Over the Rainbow #2: Electric Ladyland

    Electric Ladyland

    Here with go with round two. The pre-ramble: a lot of people think Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd was designed to sync up with The Wizard of Oz with amazing results. In an effort to see if any other albums might have the same sync-ing feeling, I’m touring various albums that I think might have a shot. This is the second stop on my tour of fifty albums to see what happens when we mix music and movies in ways that no deity ever intended. Each album is synced using the normal instructions to sync with Dark Side: i.e., wait for the third roar and kick it off. I will watch the entire movie with the album on repeat and make notes on what, if anything, is brought to light. I do this so you don’t have to.

    Second candidate? The sprawling epic monstrosity that is Jimi Hendrix‘s Electric Ladyland. I knew I wanted to try Hendrix with this and I was trying to figure out whether to do this one or Are You Experienced?. I finally went with this one because of its epic nature, as well as classics like “Voodoo Chile,” “All Along the Watchtower,” and “Burning of the Midnight Lamp.” Trippy album + trippy movie should make for an amazing experience, yes? As always, I suggest you be familiar with both film and album, because I don’t really have a way of, you know, doing this legally while you watch as well.

    (Our first experiment, with Sgt. Pepper’s, can be found here.)

    So let’s see what happens:
